Recruited Into Slavery

The InterfaithCenter for Corporate Responsibility (ICCR), of which the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes is a member, publishes “Recruited into Slavery.” 

In January of 2014 the ICCR launched its “No Fees” campaign to encourage major brands and companies to establish ethical standards for labor recruitment. Unethical recruitment, it has been found, puts workers at risk for human trafficking. ICCR’s latest report documents in-country research in Thailand, which you may recall was down-graded to tier-three by the US State Department in its 2014 Trafficking in Persons Report.
